Lab Overview

"Le Très Jazz Club present a reissue of Masaru Imada Trio + 2's Green Caterpillar, originally released on Three Blind Mice in 1975. Fuzati (Klub Des Loosers), producer and die-hard crate digger, has teamed up with Modulor to launch the Le Très Jazz Club label, dedicated to jazz vinyl reissues. For the first two releases, Mine (LTJC 001LP) and Green Caterpillar, presented here, Le Très Jazz Club has chosen to celebrate Japan. Japanese jazz is sadly one of the best-kept secrets in music. But, it would be stupid to not discover Green Caterpillar by Masaru Imada Trio + 2. Led by Masaru Imada and his Fender Rhodes, the record opens with 'A Green Caterpillar', an 11-minute piece whose groove is somewhat reminiscent of Marc Moulin and his Placebo band. 'A Straight Flash' continues along this line, while on 'Blue Impulse' and 'Spanish Flower' sees Imada use the piano in a much more modal style." - Le Très Jazz Club
